Back from the Dead

Well, rumors that the AMC-TV series The Killing--a lesser and previously cancelled American version of the popular Danish show Forbrydelsen--weren’t dead after all have been proved true. The Los Angeles Times reports today that the crime drama “has been resurrected for a third season by AMC and Fox Television Studios, bringing back its creator Veena Sud and original stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman.” An announcement from AMC’s president makes clear that this next season will focus once more on a single case, to be resolved (we hope) over the course of a dozen episodes.

E! Online mentions that “season three will begin production on Feb. 25 in Vancouver, Canada.” It’s not clear exactly when The Killing will return to the small screen, but there have already been clues as to the new story line. From ZAP2It:
A year after closing the Rosie Larsen case, Sarah Linden is no longer a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder’s search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she’d left behind.
